Question about Microtek SCANMAKER I900 Flatbed Scanner
The scanner was working fine, then I had my system rebuilt - new motherboard, CPU and RaM - so had to reinstall all drivers. Since then, my i900 will not work. I've installed and reinstalled the Scanwizard Pro software (which includes drivers) many times. Have even called Microtek and they gave me instructions for a totally clean install where I had to go into the registry and delete the Microtek entry and still no go. After the most recent clean installed, it looked like it would work. I opened Scanwizard Pro, it asked me to calibrate and for the time being, I skipped it. I then clicked the Overview button and got the message: "Fail to read image. System error 31, a device attached to the system is not functioning." When I clicked out of that, I got a second message: "Code -1007, not enough memory for driver to work." I have 2 gig of RAM installed. I know the scanner is working because I was able to successfully install it on my laptop. I have also checked in Device Manager and it says the scanner if working properly. I'm wondering if there is some kind of device conflict - or would this show in the Device Manager? I did have a new HP DVD burner with LightScribe installed with my other hardware upgrades. Also, in some web searches on the first error message, did see the bios mentioned, but nothing that clearly related to my specific problem. I'm just wondering if the guys who rebuilt my system didn't do something in the bios that is causing this problem. I must admit I've always found the Scanmaker touchy in terms of installing drivers and getting it to work - I previously had the 8700. Can anyone offer help? I'm desperate! Thanks, Cynthia
This is a funny problem. Try & locate SCanwizard 5 files and delete them. Complete the registry deletion as suggested. Run scandisk. Install and uninstall Scanwizard 5.

Try placing your paper at different places on the scan bed. Also if you have fluorescent lights on nearby turn them off.
Also is your driver compatiible with your OS?
Did you recnently upgrade anythin?

Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6.
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here. http://www.hamrick.com http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#microtek
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin

replacing the lamp is not a difficult task, the most important thing is to disassemble the unit. Once the unit is successfully disassemble, all you need do is to fixing the lamp into its position and that would be all.
Turn of the Microtek scan-maker, remove it from the plug, get a Phillips screw driver that can fit into the screws of the Microtek scan-maker. Unscrew all the screws on the Microtek scan-maker, use a flat screw driver to pry the Microtek scan-maker from the side in order to be able to take the cover apart.
The moment you are able to successfully take the Microtek scan-maker apart, you will see the lamp, then you can make necessary replacement.
I hope you understand the above. If you don't, please let me know.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat
Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.
Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit
scroll to bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click select task manager
applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end now
also under processes see what is ticking over again if you see something you don't need to be running end now or you might uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs
not having enough computer ram can cause memory dumps
If you are not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
you should always for a guarantee on any ram modules when purchasing them or buy working pairs if possible
hope this helps
